We arrived on time for an 8pm reservation. It was for a party of two. We were told we could have an immediate table in the bar or wait 10 or 15 minutes for a table in the main dining room. We elected the later and at 8:30pm, I asked Mrs Scotto how much longer. She replied table #13 was just paying and it should not be too much longer. Forty-five minutes after our reservation, we were seated at a table. Surprisingly, we were NEVER offered a cocktail for our troubles. Our waiter arrived and did our drink order. We requested 2 chardonay's, and were told they had nothing by the glass in chardonay. We settled for pinot instead. The tables are VERY close and tight. When the man next to us went to leave, he accidently spilled an entire glass of water on another patron. It went on the male diner, his briefcase, and all over the table. Good thing it was not red wine. Both apologized but realized it was due to the closeness of the tables. When this table was turned, the hostess was standing between our table and theirs and her long sweater hung dangerously close to our candle. So close it almost caught on fire. Talk about a hot evening! We ordered one appetizer, 2 pasta entree's and a dessert, and left the restaurant 3 hours after our scheduled reservation. This was not our choice; the kitchen seemed slow and overwhelmed. As a busy NYer who eats out most nights, I had not been here for many years. I now know why. There are better choices in mid town. As an executive in the service industry, who works in mid town, I will never go back or recommend to my clients.
Cons: Noisy and crowded
